‘They Shoot Music Don’t They’ regularly film the world’s best new bands on the streets of their hometown Vienna. Recently they visited Scotland to capture some of our finest musicians in unusual places. This week, King Creosote, the Pictish Trail and James Yorkston in an Anstruther pub:

They Shoot Music Don’t They Goes to Scotland

#4 – The Fence Collective

This session includes King Creosote, James Yorkston and The Pictish Trail and the songs “Leslie”, “Spanish Ants”, “Not To Be”, “Curtain Craft”, “I Awoke” and “Skerryvore”, recorded on a long and relaxed afternoon in Anstruther. Once the Fence Records musicians have made themselves cosy with some beer up to the fireplace, the chance to convince them to also perform songs outside in this picturesque fishing village fainted with every note and every sip. Never mind! Kenny from King Creosote makes a slide detour to the rough and scenic coast for a haunting solo performance of “Leslie” and every other song is played indoor as a trio in some jocular and merry atmosphere.

The moments of nonchalance and collective improvisation in the comfortable pub-setting doubtlessly make up for the lack of perspective and location change in the videos. And the videos show something else that this area of Scotland is famous for: great music and cordial people. We suggest in any case to come out here and jaunt somewhere between the Fisheries Museum, the shore, the pub, the award-winning fish and chips shop and the Fence Records office. For the best of it all, watch out for the larger-than-life Homegame Festival!
